Abstract:

Civil military relations have been marked by tension and conflict, as well as cooperation, throughout American history. But they have been particularly troublesome, as well as especially important for national defense, at various times since World War II, none more so than during the 1960s during the tenure of Robert McNamara as Secretary of Defense and during the last five-plus years in the Rumsfeld Pentagon. Some in the press and defense community have compared the two Secretaries of Defense, seeing considerable similarity between the two. Are they alike? How do they compare? And since both were extremely strong, vigorous, and assertive civilian leaders, how should the military react to and serve such secretaries of defense so as to maximize effective policies and decision making, maintain civilian control of the military, and preserve military professionalism?
